If you want to install and use the SimCity BuildIt app on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use this app for your computer in 4 simple steps below:

Step 1: Download an Android emulator for PC and Mac

Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here

Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac

Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.

Step 3: for PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type SimCity BuildIt in the search bar and press Search. Click on SimCity BuildIt application icon. A window of SimCity BuildIt on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the icon. Click on it and start using the application.

Step 4: for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use this app for Mac are exactly like the ones for Windows OS above. All you need to do is install the Nox Application Emulator or Bluestack on your Macintosh. The links are provided in step one

  • Frustrating

    By mancyness
    I really like this game and I want to keep playing, but it is so frustrating. Firstly, expanding your land is so difficult. You need certain items and the game rarely gives you these items and you have about a 1% chance of finding them for sale from other players. Then, expanding your city storage is frustrating. The game gives you a ton of those items right up until you almost have enough, and then it just stops giving them to you. The game tries so hard to make you spend real money, and honestly Id feel better if I just never downloaded it. I want to play this game but I cant expand my territory without paying 24 simcash for EACH upgrade item!! Ridiculous!! I actually broke down and paid 2.99 to get 200 simcash, and it was only barely enough for one expansion, including the items I already had. Seriously this game is ridiculous!! Earning money hasnt even been the problem for me at all, like some other reviewers have said. To earn money you just have to produce and sell a lot. That is easy and feasible, and pretty fun as well. But expanding your city is difficult and frustrating. To the developers.. Please make it easier to expand!! Edit: The clubs are a cool idea, but there is no point in having them or the wars if I cant find a club that is active. Every club I join has like one post a week. I would like to participate in the wars, but I have been unable to find an active club that will allow me to do so.
  • Love the game, but some changes can be made.

    By ghjsfujffjoomvxs
    This is a great game! I love the club wars and the challenges. My city is at level 50 now, and it’s totally fun. You get to build buildings, and you can get other, special limited time buildings from the city challenges and other things too. But to expand now I have to get 20 of each item. It’s hard to get the items, eventually you’ll have to pay real money for them, so it would be nice to make them easier to obtain. Maybe at a certain point it just costs a certain amount to expand every time. It would also be nice if your city could expand more. Also, make it so there are limitless expansions. You would still need the items to expand, but like I said before, maybe stop raising the expansion cost after around maybe 20 of each item. They take up a lot of space along with being hard to obtain. Besides that, I would suggest adding weather to the game. You can see the temperature and the forecast. Maybe you can make holidays for your city to celebrate. Maybe people get injured in the weather, and you can upgrade your hospitals to take more patients. It would be cool to add snowplows that go around your city. Also, add a feature that shows how environmentally considerate your city is and healthy it is too. Maybe the more parks, mountain, beach and entertainment specialization's you have your sims health improves. Those are all my suggestions. I would highly recommend this game, it’s super fun!
  • Good,but frustrating!!!!!

    By Iluvekats
    I really enjoyed playing this game, but feel that a few items should be changed about the game. I think that if you put an item for sale you should be able to spend coins or dollars to take the item down and keep the item. I also think it would be nice if we could trade omega items with others. My main issue with this game is when it comes to having a war with another group. There seems to be a new strategy going around, which while brilliant, it’s frustrating and makes me not want to play. Team 1 goes in and bombs team 2 quickly, therefore accumulating a lot of war points quickly. Team 2 retaliates, but maybe they don’t have as many members, so they can’t put up as many war points as quickly. Team 1 is completely bubbled and doesn’t ever unbubble. So team 1 is going to win because they refuse to unbubble, and team too just has to sit there and wait. I understand that it is “war “ but this is happening every time I play, and it’s to the point where I don’t even want to go to war with my group anymore. Can’t you make it so that we either have to pay a penalty if we stay bubbled after a certain amount of time or you automatically have to unbubble after so many hours? Just in the name of fairness this would be a great option. Again I understand it’s a game, and it’s a great strategy, but it’s been used way too much and it’s ruining the game for me.
  • Options

    By Stray Elk
    I amongst many love this game. Personally my favorite game out of all of the ones on my phone. There have been many things done to improve this game and hopefully more will be done! The first idea/ option would be for the different regions in the game. What comes with different regions is the different currencies. It seams the only way to accumulate these different currencies is through expansion and building. Sims in all different regions should pay taxes like the sims in capital region. Otherwise accumulation of other currencies is slow. Second idea/ option is being aloud to remove members from the club during a war. In some clubs no wars are aloud yet people initiate them anyways. Being able to remove those members should also remove the current war they started as well since the club doesn’t thrive on fighting wars like other clubs do. Another idea involving wars is people if they please can initiate wars but it can not be started unless authorized by the president. Third and last sort of fun idea would be a weather cycle. Having some rainy days and some normal days would be fun to see. Or possibly a weather cycle that is with current time like spring, summer, fall and winter. Along with the amazing graphics of the simulation game can involve a weather cycle. Sim City is a great game, much has been done to it and hopefully more

  • Terrible and slow if you don’t want to buy credits.

    By Dr. Clement Shimizu
    The developers really lost sight of what makes sim city fun by using a terrible in app purchase system for speeding up gameplay. I’ve really lost a lot of respect for this franchise due to this abhorrent game. I’d rather pay one time for sim city 1or sim city 2000 than the iAP like this.
  • Enjoyable into you can’t get stuff

    By 233444c2
    I liked it and went for a while I stop playing then I join back and found it very hard to obtain the item points taken 30 minutes and normally been sold in second on the trading HQ I left the game once again and I might come back if I hear any difference I will read the reviews every day
  • WHAT?

    I had this and it was free but wanted to start over as it was taking so long to get money went to get back out of cloud and am now being told to pay? Confused would not have tried to delete if you would let us destroy our own city to start again also confused by that it should be a choice for all buildings not just some I’m guessing this is one of the many reasons it’s getting bad reviews by everyone
  • Weird

    By Derek Furst
    I hate it it’s not what the game says it’s actually a game that tells you how to poop🤢🤮
  • Video Ads make it unplayable

    By Tbug227
    The game is fun and easy to play. Definitely need to rely on manufacturing and sales to succeed. BUT: they started in with video ads. At first I could choose whether or not to start one and get a reward. But then the videos popped up while I was doing other things. If you try clicking the settings icon it doesn’t respond. And this was happening basically every 60-120 seconds so I had to delete the app.
  • Good game but kind of boring

    By Unicorn/Mermiad
    I love your game! I’s grate but I stoped playing it I not to long ago so feel free to add stuff like new structures, decorations, and more! Even though I stopped playing it I think it deserves 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
  • Was Fun Before Pay-to-Play

    By BroadClarity
    This game was a blast until they started monetizing the hell out of it. Moving on. What’s really sad is how engaging this game was before it became a money-grab for the producing company. :( Now, it seems as though items normally easily available during rebuilds and expansions are virtually impossible to obtain without spending real money. I hope this game returns to its honest roots. Until then, I suppose I’ll explore alternatives. How sad! Glad there’s competition, tho! Woot! 🤪
  • Great game but...

    By zdriver72
    I would like to see the Global Trade HQ updated to where you could search for specific items to make it easier to find what you need, and to prevent from saturating the market full of one type of item.
  • Sugar and bloody spices!!!!

    By mesh332
    Pleaaaaase get rid of sugar and spices Burn them Destroy them! the GTHQ is FLOODED with sugar and spices and it has been for at least a couple of years It’s a great game but please fix this annoying problem..
  • Consider adding new functions for club members

    By qwex0134
    Some club members may do something really well. I want those talents to be used as functions, like news reporter or wrecker.
